Welcome to ECOSYS

UMR ECOSYS - Ecologie fonctionnelle et écotoxicologie des agroécosystèmes


Ecophysiology and physical chemistry of plant-atmosphere interactions
  • Understanding and modelling agroecosystems functioning in interaction with biotic (pathogens, macrofauna, multispecies associations) and abiotic (low nitrogen levels, water, heat and oxidative stresses) factors;
  • Identification of the ecophysiological processes involved in the resilience of crops and their associated functional traits;
  • Quantification and prediction of biosphere-atmosphere exchanges of greenhouse gases, pollutants and particles, and the fate of nitrogen and pesticides from field to European scales beyond that of individual plots;
  • Integrated evaluation of food and energy crops systems, taking into account production, costs and environmental impacts.
